Massage Bar Soaps are a great sensory tool on their own, with round nubs for massaging muscles as you clean. I am kicking up the sensory level with choices of fragrance & color, and options for add-ins of textural and/or visual interest. Sensory add-ins include: rolled oats, poppy seeds, biodegradeable glitter, loofah slice, sustainably gathered sea sponges from Tarpon Springs, FL, cranberry seeds, and calendula petals.
Sensory Massage Soaps
Usage: Wash & rinse thoroughly, taking care with scrubby surfaces and avoiding eyes. Remove soap from standing water. Supervise young children during use, especially scrubby type soaps or soaps that smell like or resemble food; soap is not edible. People with extreme sensitivities/allergies should conduct a spot test before use.
Care: To make your glycerin soap last a long time, do not let it sit in water. Best practice is to remove from the shower when you are finished, and allow soap to dry between uses. Gently squeeze any water from the sea sponge, if your soap has one, and store out of water, with the sponge side down. I recommend using a Soap Lift or a draining soap dish. If "glycerin dew" appears (looks like sweat or small crystals), due to the humectant properties of the soap, simply rinse in water, it will not affect the functionality of the soap, nor is it harmful in any way.
